NAMPA, Idaho (AP) - Eastern Idaho parents Nick and Chelsea Torres are home with their newborn conjoined twins after a six-day drive from Texas.

Nampa TV station KIVI (https://bit.ly/2nsEyrc ) reports the twins, Callie and Carter, are healthy so doctors aren’t going to try to separate them right now. The girls have separate torsos but they share a set of legs and a bladder.

Nick and Chelsea Torres temporarily moved from Idaho Falls to Houston last year so a specialist could monitor the high-risk pregnancy.

Chelsea says they are looking forward to getting to know the girls better, but she still worries about what challenges her daughters will face as they grow.

Doctors advised her to terminate the pregnancy and warned that the girls might not make it. Now she calls them her miracle babies.
